Christmas White

It was a dry December month There was no rain, there was no snow And so his hopes were wearing thin For Christmas White to be on show Yet still a chance there is, he thought As hope lives on, however small And so he visioned Christmas joy Through snowflakes short and snowflakes tall Prepared he was, to set the scene Such merry making, pure delight The boughs of jolly wreaths were hung His tree of green was trimmed with light With gifts of gold set ‘neath the tree And Christmas bird set now to cook It was December 24th Did he see snow, “let’s have a look” With faithful wife and little ones He went to window just to see The first of many snowflakes fall In Christmas dance of frosted glee He never gave up hope, you know For he believed and thus it came He wished that all around the world That folk would always do the same It’s then he said, “I’ll need my coat” As Mrs. Claus prepared his hat Then “Reindeered” Santa made his way To fly again and that was that!

Oh I love this Mike. Your ending brought a glimmer of tears. Christmas looking through a child’s eyes waiting for Santa warms the heart of every parent and grand, great grand and great great grand. Your special poem will be read to my 9 year old granddaughter who I know will love it too. Thank you for the heartwarming emotion you have drawn from me. A Fave for sure! Congratulations on your deserving POTD! Blessings xxoo

"Santa made his way to fly again, and that was that!" :) This is so cute. Even Santa waits for the snow. Send some my way, because here in Bama, it doesn't snow that much. May you have a White Christmas, Mike. Your thoughts bring a smile. Congratulations on Poem of the Day. :) Hugs, Brandy

I'm just like Santa in a number of ways, Mike: Big, fat, laugh a lot, and I never give up hope either -- that not one single snowflake will fall this and every winter in Chicago. Then again, I believed in the Chicago Cubs for 108 years too. lol. Congrats on POTD, gw
